[image]Ichkeul Lake, Tunisia - Image courtesy NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS, and the U.S./Japan ASTER Science Team
In northern Tunisia near the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, the lake and wetlands of Ichkeul National Park are an important stopping-over point for hundreds of thousands of migrating birds each year. Among the lake’s visitors are ducks, geese, storks, and pink flamingoes. The park is on the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) list of World Heritage sites, and since 1996, the park has also been on the group’s List of World Heritage Sites in Danger...

[image]Songhua River: Image of the Day - NASA -- Image courtesy NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS, and the U.S./Japan ASTER Science Team.
Northeastern China's Songhua River flows northward out of the Changbai Mountains and cuts across the Manchurian Plain before emptying into the Amur River, which separates northeastern China from Russia's Far East. As China's northernmost river system, the Songhua is an important artery for transporting agricultural products grown on the plain. On its way, the river flows past Harbin, the capital of China's Heilongjiang Province, where it is the source of drinking water for several million people...

[image]Erebus Ice Tongue: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA image created by Jesse Allen, using data provided courstesy of NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS, and the U.S./Japan ASTER Science Team.
The Erebus glacier in Antarctica comes down from Mt. Erebus and protrudes off the coast of Ross Island, forming an 11-12 km long ice tongue -- a long and narrow sheet of ice projecting out from the coastline. The Erebus Ice Tongue is the serrated, blue-rimmed ''knife'' extending toward image center from the upper right out into snow- and ice-covered McMurdo Sound. Beneath the smooth white expanse is the Southern Ocean...

[image]Retreat of the Helheim Glacier, Greenland: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA images created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data provided courtesy of NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS, and the U.S./Japan ASTER Science Team.
Along the margin of the Greenland Ice Sheet, outlet glaciers flow as icy rivers through narrow fjords and out to sea. As long as the thickness of the glacier and the depth of the water allow the ice to remain grounded, it stays intact. Where the ice becomes too thin or the water too deep, the edge floats and rapidly crumbles into icebergs. Satellite observations of eastern Greenland's Helheim Glacier show that the position of the iceberg's calving front, or margin, has undergone rapid and dramat...

[image]Angkor Ruins: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data provided courstesy of NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS, and the U.S./Japan ASTER Science Team.
The ancient city of Angkor sat at the center of the once powerful Khmer Empire of Southeast Asia. Located north of Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia, the capital city flourished between the 9th and 15th centuries. The royal family abandoned the city in the 15th century, and the city was swallowed by the surrounding jungle, though never entirely abandoned. Now a World Heritage Site, the ruins of the ancient city cover some 400 square kilometers...
